i've got a lot of cards that have been sitting in my scanned folder for extended periods of time. this post will show some of them - kind of a 'why did i scan this card' post.
can you guess which company made this card?
the first time i saw one of these 'ring leader' inserts, i would have bet dollars to donuts that this was a pacific release. nope. it comes from 1995 topps stadium club. molitor got his ring with the blue jays in 1993, and every player in florida and arizona right now is hoping to get one 8 months from now.
1984 topps bob bailor
1993 upper deck joey cora
those three were obviously meant for a rundown/pickle post.
1997 upper deck mike mcfarlane
1998 fleer ultra brady anderson
1998 upper deck ray durham
2003 fleer flair greats gaylord perry
2003 topps stadium club carlos delgado
2009 topps billy butler
i think i was struck by the uncommon angle of the photo used on that card, although after i looked into it, there were more cards like this than i thought.
here's a mike piazza 1997 upper deck card
last but not least, here's a 1961 topps bob aspromonte card
i don't need a reason to scan some vintage dodger goodness.
